WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS?

ASSET BASED CARRIERS
Asset based carriers work well in situation where the customer is looking for consistent capacity to handle their most static traffic lanes or where dropped trailers are utilized. Dropped trailers can be utilized to minimize warehouse labor while avoiding the restrictions of appointments or the uncertainty of first come first serve shipping. Asset carriers also work very well in a dedicated model where the customer pays for service in stable traffic lanes. These lanes can be either closed (customer freight both directions) or open (customer freight plus off setting carrier-supplied backhaul revenue).

 

NON-ASSET OR SEMI-ASSET
Non-Asset or Semi-asset carriers or brokers utilize owner operators to maximize capacity without paying for underutilized capital expenditures. Customers with large seasonal volume swings benefit most from utilizing owner operator fleets. Owner operators in most cases will outperform employee driven assets because they have a financial stake in keeping customer satisfaction high. They work well in dedicated models and brokerage.

BROKERAGE
Brokerage has moved into main stream logistics. Brokerage done right will yield the best rates during times of excess capacity and add capacity during tight capacity markets or seasonal volume increases. Brokerage is a very important part of a complete logistics solution. Today’s technology allows for immediate carrier safety vetting, load tracking.

PRIVATE CARTAGE
Private Cartage in some cases is the best option for the customer. Private cartage works well where everything is known, consistent, niche or otherwise under served by for hire providers. Private cartage assets can be used in conjunction with carriers.
The biggest drawbacks to private cartage is lack of core competency, baked in expenses regardless of market condition, decreasing volumes and liability. Many times the customer simple wants their brand in the public eye. However, branding can be done with both Asset and non-asset carriers.

FINDING THE RIGHT SOLUTION
Finding the right solution for a customer will take time to develop and time to fully implement. The best mix of services will yield the best service and pricing, while allowing for change and growth with minimal financial risk.

Brent Redmond Logistics LLC believes a mix of all options is usually the best solution.
